Corgi biscuits fit for The Queen.

 

qbb1

Red, white and blue corgi biscuits for the Queen’s birthday.

What could be more British than a cup of tea and a biscuit? A biscuit made to honour The Queen and decorated in red, white and blue? Especially if that biscuit was made for to celebrate a very special birthday too.

You should all know by now my weakness for a shaped cookie cutter, so when I saw that Sainsburys had made a corgi shaped cutter as part of their Queen’s birthday celebration stock, I knew it had to be mine.

I am no artist so creating those beautiful biscuits with run out icing and piped features isn’t happening anytime soon. Best I stick to a dab of glace icing and a fistful of sprinkles. Every party needs sprinkles, especially The Queen’s.

Corgi biscuits – Ingredients.

qbb3

Corgi biscuit ingredients

1 corgi cutter (Sainsburys) or a crown cutter would do and I’m sure these are more widely available.

150g plain flour

100g softened butter

50g caster sugar

icing sugar

red, white and blue sprinkles.

How to…..

  • Preheat the oven to 160c
  • Beat together the butter and sugar using a wooden spoon.
  • Using the same spoon mix in the flour.If it gets hard going use your hands to help.
  • Once a dough is formed leave to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes or so.
  • Roll the dough out to the  a little more than the thickness of a pound coin.
  • Cut out your shape and place on a parchment line baking tray.
  • Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.

Corgi biscuits cooling before icing.

  • Allow to cool completely on a wire tray.
  • Mix up the icing sugar with a little water to a thickish consistency. Thick enough to spread but too thick to pipe.
  • Cover the biscuits in icing.
  • Dip the iced biscuits into the sprinkles and press to make the sprinkles stick.

Put on the kettle, make a pot  of tea and sing “Happy Birthday, Your Majesty”. It’s probably a treasonable offence to eat a corgi but……..

I’m adding this to Treat Petite, run and hosted this month by Stuart at Cakeyboi and Kat at The Baking Explorer.
